Nice roller skates for girls outdoors

As a professional wheelie enthusiast, I am honored to share my experience with you. If I have the opportunity, I would like to discuss roller skating with you.
(1) With the help of fixed objects
Slide toward the wall or any reasonably immobilized object, using your arm for cushioning while touching them. Good for low speed situations (remember to turn your head when touching the wall so you don’t slam your face into the wall). Pay attention to learn to use your arms as a cushion (just like doing push-ups while standing) You can practice this: put on your shoes and stand 1 or 2 feet away from the wall, lean towards the wall, and support with your hands. You should bounce slightly, as long as you don’t hit your head against the wall. The faster you move against the wall, the lesser the bounce. The human flesh brake will be more effective, pay attention to choose a familiar and skilled companion, and warn you of your approach when approaching him.
⑵ brake pad brake
For beginners who just put on roller skates, this method is also relatively easy to use, but after the level is improved, the brake pad may become an obstacle. For example, you may stumble when doing cross-steps… Step out your right leg first, while your toes are off the ground, and your heels are pressed down. The center of gravity should be between the legs. At first, it may be slightly behind your feet. The key point here is to do the movement with your back straight and your knees bent.

During the sliding process, put the weight on the right foot, bend the right knee and lift the left foot and place it horizontally behind the right foot to form a “T” shape, then rub the ground with the sides of the four wheels of the left foot to slow down the sliding speed until it stops sliding. . Conversely, you can also use the left foot to support the right foot horizontally. Throughout the process, the body weight is mainly placed on the (front) foot that is keeping the glide. In the case of high speed, more pressure can be put on the dragging foot behind, which can make you stop for a short time. Remember that most of the body weight is still on the front foot at this time.
⑷ Emergency stop with both feet
Not everyone can do it, it’s the kind of sudden change of the foot to 90 degrees, ask the expert… This action requires a certain amount of time and courage to practice. This braking method is not suitable for beginners, because it is a little dangerous.
⑸ feet together and gradually stop
When you want to slow down, slide your feet first, then squeeze your feet together (don’t lift them), and you’ll come to a stop. Note that this method is not suitable for fast gliding, and the feet should not be completely close together to avoid tripping.
